The Churchill Bulldogs rolled to a 3-0 victory over Point Grey Tuesday afternoon at a rain-soaked Eric Hamber field hockey pitch and locked down a spot in Thursday's city championship.
The Bulldogs (4-1-3) haven't lost to a Vancouver school yet this regular season and have already qualified for the AAA senior girls field hockey provincials as the No. 2 Lower Mainland seed.
They face the Kitsilano Blue Demons (2-2-4), who eliminated Hamber 2-1 in a shootout to reach the finals. The match begins 3:30 p.m. Nov. 1 at Eric Hamber.
Against Point Grey, Sarah Patrick, Lise Bratten and Samantha Smyrnis scored for Churchill. In net, Nicola Frazer earned the shut-out.
Point Grey had two strong scoring chances in the second half, including one shot that rolled inches wide of the right post and a near breakaway from a streaking winger.
Churchill's only loss of the regular season was a 1-0 defeat by Richmond's McMath secondary Sept. 20. The two teams battled in the Lower Mainland playoff finals and McMath came out on top again, this time to secure the No. 1 regional seed heading into provincials, scheduled for Nov. 14 to 16 in Coquitlam.
Hamber heads to the Provincials as the region's No. 3 seed.
